Slide Bearing Assembly with tack or full welded elements. This configuration incorporates 1/2" thick Viblon or Reinforced Elastomer Bearing Pad in the lower element, which meets AASHTO Spec 188.8.131.52. The FC-1010-CS 1/2 RET compensates for expansion and deflection at higher load values.
Upper Element :
3/32" thick Fluorogold® bonded to 10 gauge carbon steel backing plate, tack welded to the structural steel member or sole plate.
Lower Element :
3/32" thick Fluorogold® bonded to 10 gauge carbon steel backing plate, then vulcanized to 1/2" thick Viblon or Reinforced Elastomer Bearing Pad, AASHTO spec. 184.108.40.206. A steel plate is also bonded below the Viblon pad so the lower element can be welded in place. The thickness of the neoprene and the steel plates are variable.
Loads : 75 psi to 1,500 psi
Temperature : -50° to +200° F
Slide Bearing backing plates can be:
Carbon Steel (CS)
Stainless Steel (SS)
Corten Steel (CT)
